In the last assembly elections, MIM paid back by shifting Muslim votes to the TRS. Now, with 7 seats, MIM is the second largest party in Telangana assembly. As a result, for the first ever time, it got a cabinet rank by bagging the chairpersonâ€™s post of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). Since the time of the Razakars, the MIM has got a cabinet rank for the first ever time. Asaduddin Owaisi's close relative and TV baron Ahmed bin Balala has been made the PAC chairperson.
Interestingly, 51 years after it lost its power due to the Police Action in 1948, the Majlis is back into the portals of power. Now, it wants to ensure that it's presence is felt all across the Telangana and it wants to win maximum number of seats in the elections to the municipalities and the corporations.
